Scott Nygren Scholars Studio opening celebration in Library West, March 16, 1:30-4pm

Scott Nygren Scholars Studio opening celebration in Library WestThe George A. Smathers Libraries are celebrating the opening of the Scott Nygren Scholars Studio in Library West room 212, on Monday, March 16, from 1:30-4:00 p.m. The celebration is open to the public. The Scott Nygren Scholars Studio is centrally located in Library West, the humanities & social sciences library. It is named in honor of the late Professor Scott Nygren of the English Department, who was a true friend of Library West and the George A. Smathers Libraries.
The Scott Nygren Scholars Studio is a collaborative space where faculty, staff and students are welcome to work on current digital projects and imagine new ones. Because inspiration happens best in a community, the Scholars Studio aims to be the community center for digital scholarship amidst the broader library audience of the humanities & social sciences faculty and students.  The Scholars Studio supports the interdisciplinary nature of digital humanities as a space for humanists to gather and confer, and by offering the technology necessary for new intellectual contributions to the field of digital humanities.
The Scholars Studio provides technology such as appropriate software for digital exploration of texts and images, a multi-touch screen to encourage digital play and a flexible furniture arrangement to allow for small or large group collaboration and presentation.
The Scholars Studio is open for lab hours Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 1:00-4:00 p.m. during the spring 2015 semester. Studio hours are for support of digital humanities and digital scholarship activities, not general purpose or study, and the room usage is in collaboration with the Libraries. To make a reservation contact your subject librarian. To learn more about the Scholars Studio, please see
